Integrating ESG into Real Estate Investment Management

Registrations for Q3 2024 are now open for the BBP Real Estate ESG Training course, delivered by Hillbreak. Due to the high demand expected and the need to ensure an impactful learning experience for participants, the course is being delivered to groups of between 15-20 individuals. Check the full list of available groups and course dates and make sure that you are booking the right one based on your availability as we cannot guarantee that booked places will be able to be transferred from one group to another. Swapping groups once your course is underway is usually not possible.

The key details of the course include the following:

Part 1 of this programme will be a 2-hour online introductory session. The majority of the training, Part 2, will be delivered in person over one full day. Please ensure you are available to attend BOTH parts. The in person session will be held London (venue TBC) and will include lunch and refreshments for all participants.

In this revised format we bring together participants from Asset Owner and Manager organisations, and those from Advisory & Consultancy firms in the spirit of radical collaboration which the BBP has been advocating. It has been re-designed especially for real estate professionals working within an asset management context, including those working for fund management and investment advisory institutions, Real Estate Investment Trusts and private property companies; as well as advisory professionals in capital markets, investment advisory, valuation, leasing and transactions-based roles. It is open and applicable to those in the following roles:

  • Fund managers
  • Portfolio and asset managers
  • Investment/ transaction managers
  • Development managers
  • Investor Relations specialists
  • Product development and distribution specialists, especially those looking to incorporate ESG characteristics into new or existing funds
  • Real estate finance professionals and analysts
  • Equity raising
  • Debt sourcing and structuring
  • Investment brokerage / consultancy
  • Agency (i.e. buying, selling and leasing assets and portfolios)
  • Valuation
  • Capital markets research

Please note that the course has been developed to fulfil a particular industry skills development need and is intended for the audience set out above. The BBP and Hillbreak reserve the right to reject booking requests from individuals or organisations that do not fall into eligible role categories, including, for example, those in ESG and sustainability consultancy roles.
